The Slime Wizard's Tower

This is a short adventure map I made wherein you break into a wizard's tower. Wizards are arses so this is a pretty dangerous thing in and of itself even without the horrible things going on within its walls. However, it's also meant to be played on Peaceful (I can't remember seeing any Peaceful maps, at least not on SA), so if you die it won't be to mere monsters.









There's a catch, though, in that you need the Amazopack and hogofwar's Peaceful Pack for it to work. Most of the latter's mods are in the former pack except for, annoyingly, the slime pool blocks seen in the third picture. The included mods are all pretty low-key, so overall the map doesn't work particularly differently from vanilla maps. It also uses map notes, but that's not a mod. If you have mods but don't know how to get a fresh .jar file, just move your current one elsewhere, open the minecraft loader and force an update to download the current version again.

It's called the The Return and will be my last adventure map. 4eva

Here is a wanky trailer:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EOKR-V3tBpY

And some pictures:





If you haven't played my previous 2 maps (as the story in this one continues on from the last 2) I urge you do to so before playing this one.

Wizard Burgmund: http://www.mediafire.com/?7u1p4ynbp7gg3g4
Tree of Life: http://www.mediafire.com/?i1n9oi1f4k4x131

Readme stuff:
If you are going to be playing this map on a multiplayer server, please make sure that it is set up to use the Nether.

This time around there are no notes to read - instead ingame maps replace these notes.

Play time should take 60 mins (or there abouts)

Can be played with 1-2 players

Download here: http://www.mediafire.com/?3gqu7x80ujimgui

Also, you might notice a sapling and some bone marrow in your inventory when you begin the game. DO NOT REMOVE THESE ITEMS - they are part of the story!

I just played through this, and it was awesome. Great work, toggle!

Can someone explain to me what the difference is with Alpha vs Beta codes, with regards to game updates?

Edit: I bought the game in early beta, but I don't think I was ever given a code, so what is it talking about? I just signed up and then signed in on the Minecraft Launcher.

There is something with a different texture to the left of the chest. I think that's sandstone though. I could be wrong though, I haven't used the original textures in forever.

I'm pretty sure that's just a close up of sand, like the edge of a block he's standing next to.

This is pretty neat right up until the platforming segment over lava, and then I deleted it.

Well, I did fall in the lava, die, and lose the apparently important sapling and bone meal first.

Also, the minecarts after the obsidian mine right before Castle Bergmund were half-way down the tracks instead of at their launch point. I thought I was expected to bring the cart I found in the chest with me.

Oh, and was I supposed to put the TNT on top of the red wool block to destroy the gravel? I ended up putting it on top of the gravel stack, which knocked the ladder of the wall and permanently destroyed one ladder segment, forcing me to place a block so I could rebuild a high enough ladder to get out.

They haven't even announced the existence of any DLC yet. Their lawyers just told them to take the "All future updates for free" part out of the list of what you get when they launched the beta.

Thank you for making my day.

There's something weird about the map orientation; if you're holding a map in-game the top (logically north) is actually East, so the sun would rise in the north and set in the south. I don't know how or why that is.

When I play, I still refer to directions based on sun and moon rise/set, regardless of what the map says.

edit - Apparently, it's just "because they said so". From the wiki:

quote:

It is commonly said that Minecraft maps are oriented with East at the top. It is certainly true that they are oriented with the direction of sunrise at the top, which is, by definition, East. However, Jeb has asserted (and Notch agreed) that in Minecraft the Sun rises in the North. Most mods and map-making tools, however, use the terms East and North consistent with their actual definitions (e.g. a Cartographer generated map with North at the top will be rotated 90 degrees from the in-game map).

I'm a little disappointed, but a little relieved since the dynamic light mod tanked my FPS. Would have been nice for adventure maps though.

So, big events over at WilsonSMP, we've capped our forty slot server over the past two days as we begin our week long End Of The World event in preparation of resetting the server for 1.8. It has been an absolute blast and we hope that things keep going as well as they have.

Decided to share some of the highlights of the event.

User Fiblah has compiled video of last nights event (Day 1) for us:

Fiblah posted:

End of the World Part 1: Defense of Ironpool
End of the World Part 2: Defending Osiris
End of the World Part 3: Battle in the Arena

I recorded over 1 hour and 45 minutes of footage last night, 152 gb of raw video. It was hard to condense it down to just 3 videos, but I think I got most of the highlights of the night. Unfortunately I wasn't picked to go on the mission back into Ironpool, so I didn't get any video of that.


The last few pages of the thread have tons of compiled pictures and timelines to check out as well.

I'd really like for there to be sand in more places. Sand deposits are actually quite common in real world caves and can be very hazardous for miners. Sure we have gravel in cave systems but there should be sand there too.

I love the heck out of vines, and they're going to make a wonderful decorative addition to my buildings, but I'm not too impressed with the swamp... It'll probably look better with a low view distance (fog), though.

I'd like to see a swamp block added. One that functions as a water source block, but can be walked on with reduced movespeed. Also, mangroves that grow on swamp next to water and spread as time passes.
